Vision for Diversity

UW-Extension appreciates and understands the value of diversity and will work to create and sustain it among employees, clientele and educational partners. Individuals are valued for their differences in age, ethnicity, culture, class, gender, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, spiritual practice, and all dimensions of human diversity. Extension is enriched by the diversity of the human experiences that contribute to the relevance and richness of its educational programs. By embracing the full range of these talents and experiences Extension can assure its continued educational leadership.

The University of Wisconsin-Extension is a diverse and multicultural institution that values pluralism as an essential component of a strong organization. Through interaction with diverse populations and cultures, the institution develops and delivers relevant and effective programs that address the interests and needs of all the people of Wisconsin.
